Both companies aim to develop services and applications on the platform by implementing best practices in security monitoring, building access, payments, commerce, advertising, education and health care. In the future, BSD City will set a benchmark for smart city development in East Kalimantan.

We are optimistic that this collaboration will realize the construction of data centers in the country and maintain national data sovereignty, which is being carried out by the government of Indonesia.”
